The rapid spread of COVID-19 has sown confusion about what the rules are regarding where Minnesotans can go, how many can gather and what the government is doing to enforce them.

As a woman walked past Grand Avenue's Wedding Shoppe a couple of days ago, she saw something that alarmed her: a large group of people filing into the longtime St. Paul bridal store at a time when fears of the spread of coronavirus have led to the closure of schools and businesses.

On Sunday, she posted her disapproval on Nextdoor, loosing a torrent of more than 100 mostly grouchy messages - several accusing the store's owners of breaking the law while others blasted them for greedily endangering their employees and customers.
